    I'll change the plugs on 1,2,3,4,6 & 8, you can do 5 & 7!


    actually the only bad ones on mine are #7 & #8,
    but im using hedman 68090 hedders. ( hey, thats
    how they spell em...) and #7 & #8 are easily accessed
    from below once you get the car 3ft in the air.

    not sure bout those ear splitting sidepipe headers as
    they are routed a bit different.

      this takes less room then it did with the vacuum booster. In 3d, there's a ton of room there... add to it that the steering box is no longer there, sidepipe headers are not block-hugging, and you can get to every plug from underneath and this thing has acres of space... as is usually the case, 1 & 2 are the hardest with maybe 8 coming in a close 3rd.

        Having another look I can see that there would be a bit of room under the master.
        Enjoying watching it come together, your speed on projects still boggles my mind!

          it feels slow from my chair... but thank you, I appreciate the compliment

          I didn't get much done today, but a bit did get accomplished
          like making a hole bigger


          ground on this then painted it


          goal here was to set the height of shelft


          once I finish the booster, I'm pulling the body off again to glass the shelf, the inner wheel wells, and the inner fenders, then, of course, plumb the frame. Hopefully when done with that list the body goes on for permanent

                      back to this....

                      up we go

                      fix the tank bracket


                      set the FI tech on

                      and now spend a lot of time sitting and staring at the tank with all the fittings I have to come up with a plan

                      like I said

                                more fitting - seems I got a bit generous with the motor mount


                                chop chop


                                close, time to tilt the motor


                                better


                                OMG washers
